No One Dies Alone

Recently, I rediscovered and was newly inspired by this NPR article about an Austin hospital system’s initiative to ensure that no one dies alone.

 

 

In all the practical considerations that we focus on around dying and deathcare–in helping mainly the families address costs and arrangements and options for disposal–it’s sometimes easy to lose sight of the experience of the dying person.

I’m always thankful that there are those in the death and dying community who are called to this part of the process, who take on the task of ensuring that no one dies alone.
